Welcome to Jeff the Finn page

The Dalles, Oregon

Jeff the Finn, in full beard

Below is a road cam from the Oregon Department of Transportation, at the US 197 Bridge looking North.  The bridge is going across the Columbia River.  To the right in the picture you can see the BPA dam, The Dalles Dam.

Unless we know Christ personally we have not yet learnt what it means to be a Christian.

Metropolitan ANTHONY (Bloom)


Above all things: forget not the poor, but support them to the extent of your means. Give to the orphan, protect the widow, and permit the mighty to destroy no man. Take not the life of the just or the unjust, nor permit him to be killed. Destroy no Christian soul, even though he be guilty of murder.
Saint Prince Vladimir, Equal-to-the-Apostles


Lord Almighty,
God of our fathers,
     of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
     and of their righteous offspring;
who hast made heaven and earth in their manifold array;
who hast confined the ocean by thy word of command,
who hast shut up the abyss and sealed it with thy fearful and glorious name;
all things tremble and quake in the face of thy power.
For the majesty of thy glory is more than man can bear,
and none can endure thy menacing wrath against sinners;
the mercy in thy promise is beyond measure:  none can fathom it.
For thou art Lord Most High,
compassionate, patient, and of great mercy,
relenting when men suffer for their sins.
For out of thy great goodness thou, O God,
hast promised repentance and remission to those who sin against thee,
and in thy boundless mercy thou hast appointed repentance for sinners as the way to salvation.
So thou, Lord God of the righteous,
didst not appoint repentance for Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
who were righteous and did not against thee,
but for me, a sinner,
whose sins are more in number than the sands of the sea.
My transgressions abound, O Lord, my transgressions abound,
and I am not worthy to look up and gaze at the height of heaven
because of the number of my wrongdoings.
Bowed down with a heavy chain of iron,
I grieve over my sins and find no relief,
because I have provoked thy anger
and done what is evil in thine eyes,
setting up idols and so piling sin on sin.
Now I humble my heart, imploring thy great goodness.
I have sinned, O Lord, I have sinned
and I acknowledge my transgressions.
I pray and beseech thee,
spare me, O Lord, spare me,
destroy me not with my transgressions on my head,
do not be angry with me for ever, nor store up evil for me.
Do not condemn me to the grave,
for thou, Lord, art the God of the penitent.
Thou wilt show thy goodness towards me,
for unworthy as I am thou wilt save me in thy great mercy;
and so I shall praise thee continually all the days of my life.
For all the host of heaven sings thy praise,
and thy glory is for ever and ever.  Amen.

Fr Alexander Men


I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages, Light of Light; true God of true God; begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by Whom all things were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from Heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man.  And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried.  And the third day He arose again, according to the Scriptures, and ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; whose Kingdom shall have no end.

And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; Who spoke by the prophets.  In one Holy , Catholic, and Apostolic Church.  I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins.  I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.  AMEN
